Why bother with a crass reply like that. There is so much crap out
there that maybe, just maybe, the OP thought he may get some pointers
to decent plans and sites from a woodworking group and not just dross.
God I hate idiots.

Just about ALL of the other suggestions showed up on the very first
page of the search I set up. This question is asked so frequently
that I've got that search bookmarked. Many other folks no longer even
bother to reply to this question.
Maybe we should visit the OP and build something for him? I would
hate to have him put some of his own time an effort into it.
If he's looking for a decent plan, maybe asking for Morris Chair
plans, candle stand plans, or the like might provide something more to
Of course he said what kind. He said FREE.
You guys and your google, you don't get it. It's a lousy way to find
free plans. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry SELLING woodworking plans
sticks the word FREE in their meta tags so the search engines will
There are FEW sites which truly have free plans. Most only have 1 or
2 free ones, and if you try searching for something specific, the
engine picks up the word FREE somewhere on the page, and you think you
have a good hit.
Try it, search for "coffee table free plan" in google and the entire
first page that is returned is crap.
Maybe all you retired guys have all the time in the world to screw
around searching thousands of sites for truly free plans, but many of
us don't. Why not just help the guy out and post a couple of links
that you KNOW contain free plans, instead of getting on your soap box?

Did you? I was able to find free plans in less than 30 seconds in
those results. I'm not saying they're exciting, but they're free.
The OP never stated ANY details as to project preferences, etc...
The first link will email plans to those who sign up, look at dat!
I followed the second link and in two clicks was looking a FREE plan
for an auxiliary band saw table, via Woodcraft's site.
I don't normally build from plans, but when I do, I can often get all
the free plans I want at my local LIBRARY. <G> Websites cost money
to run, libraries are already paid for by you and I.
Going to the library requires dragging one's ass into the library and
looking, as do search engines. The problem with FREE is that someone
has to pay to produce or distribute them, most really good plans
